Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am HVAC Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly.

OK is the leak at the compressor connection or the aluminum evaporator?

I am being told that it is at the compressor connection, but that the connection is aluminum and cannot be repaired so I need to replace the compressor (which is actually fine).
Expert:  HVAC Guru replied 3 months ago.

That still should be fixable, I have never heard of that issue not being repairable, you will not need a new compressor to fix it, find a better company.

All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the site and that will also get you a DIRECT LINK emailed to you to get back to me! are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service. If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!
